I have used leftover sloppy joe mix on hot dogs. It's funny. SJ's are good on their own, but lack pizazz on hot dogs. Maybe that's why they are called Chili Dogs. I like to add celery seed if it's chili dogs but not in chili served in a bowl.

I have a friend who sent me a few packs of Cincinnati chili seasoning. Not living anywhere near Cincinnati, I 'spect it is as close to the real thing as I am gonna get. It is, however, mighty good on hot dogs. Just my 2 cents.

Very close to what I made.
I watched a show once and the restaurant was famous for its chili cheese dogs.
The cook dumped about 20 pounds of hamburger into a very large stock pot. Added a gallon bag of (secret spices) and a measured amount of water.
That was it.

I figured since theirs was supposed to be so great, I would try using the same technique. I browned off the meat though and added what spices I figured would be good in it. Its good. I guess?
My wife and MIL loved it.
Maybe I pick up some hot dogs today and some buns?

I was going to offer something, but if this is what you are used to then I can't help. The chili dogs I've had all tasted like chili, savory, not sweet, with plenty of chili powder.

I've never made hot dog chili, but I'd make my usual red chili, leave out the beans, and use more tomato paste to make it thicker to hold the hot dog. I'd also make it spicier (hot pepper) than any chili dog I've ever bought, but that's just what I prefer in chili.
